Alessio Benassini

designer  AND FOUNDER




Alessio is a graduate in Industrial Design from the Faculty of Architecture in Florence.
After being apprenticed with a civil surveyor’s office he decided to work in a sector that would give free rein to his creativity, becoming interested in the marine industry, after gaining some important contracts in Viareggio, a naval centre of excellence.
In 2006 he began working with Archimek and over the following eight years experience, a passion for the yachting industry grew. He started his own business as a freelance designer seizing on the opportunity to collaborate with leading Italian and continental shipyards, renowned the world over for their fame and competence.
In 2014 he founded Acube design with his friend and fellow colleague, Alessio Mercidri, with whom he shares a passion for industrial design, art, representation techniques and technology.
